create a new node type for bookmarks


(Firefox :: Bookmarks & History, defect, P4)






(Reporter: dietrich, Unassigned)



we're currently adding bookmark properties onto URI node types, and detecting bookmarks in query results by checking the value of those properties.

however, bookmark identity would be much clearer if it was explicitly called out as a node type. also, as more bookmark properties get added, the "simple URI" node type will get further overloaded.
dietrich, any chance to get this done by a4?

this is not preventing anything from working. i really really want this for api clarity and to aid extension developers, but realistically it shouldn't block the release.

Bug 451915 - move Firefox/Places bugs to Firefox/Bookmarks and History. Remove all bugspam from this move by filtering for the string "places-to-b-and-h".

In Thunderbird 3.0b, you do that as follows:
Tools | Message Filters
Make sure the correct account is selected. Click "New"
Conditions: Body   contains   places-to-b-and-h
Change the action to "Delete Message".
Select "Manually Run" from the dropdown at the top.
Click OK.

Select the filter in the list, make sure "Inbox" is selected at the bottom, and click "Run Now". This should delete all the bugspam. You can then delete the filter.

Component: Places → Bookmarks & History
QA Contact: places → bookmarks
maybe obsoleted by new query api in bug 522572?
I think we want to minimize number of node types, not increase it.
